    I could help, I can get the plates laser cut, but they will need cleaning / dressing, but I am in UK... not sure if that is a problem.

    Ha ha.. not done that myself but I can appreciate how easy something like that would be to do. I get my own plates cut and no matter how much planning and foresight go into the design, until the thing is built you just don't know if it will work. Experience is a great teacher!

    If you dont get any takers here, check out sendcutsend.com. I recently priced some things using their online quote system and they were fairly reasonable.

    Before anyone says that's expensive for what it is, it really isn't. Custom work is always a bit more for a few factors. 1) Custom doesn't fit the cookie cutter requirement that a produced kit would have. 2) The mill has to be setup specifically for the job. 3) Then there is the obvious time involved in CAD/CAM even if you already have a very good file. 4) The cost of the machine, power, and tooling needs to be covered.

    That is all.
